About

For CHROs by CHROs

The CHRO-Circle is an exclusive peer network for CHROs by CHROs of global companies headquartered in Switzerland as well as of substantial divisions of international conglomerates with HQ outside Switzerland. To ensure exclusivity, membership is limited to the 300 largest companies in Switzerland.

Our Purpose

The purpose of the CHRO-Circle is to provide a trusted platform for CHROs with similar challenges to exchange best practices and know-how outside the more formal, broader bodies that already exist. The CHRO-Circle fosters and facilitates Peer Learning on topics such as digitalization and culture.

Self-governed and independent

The CHRO-Circle today counts 60 senior CHROs and is governed by the CHRO-Circle Board consisting of 3-5 CHROs (see below). The CHRO-Circle Board – in close collaboration with the members – defines the range of activities and topics.

Cross-functional exchange

Integral part of our agenda is an active dialogue between different C-Level Leaders in Switzerland on topics building on the mutual trust, confidentiality and understanding established within this exclusive community. Therefore, in addition to the CHRO-Circle, the CXO-Circle fosters the cross-functional exchange of best practices and know-how. For more information on the CXO-Circle see here.
